red mail Leigh / Grundy Family from Westhoughton & Aspull
I'm looking for any information on my 4th Great Grandfather, Peter Leigh who was named as a Weaver on his son's marriage to Elizabeth Sheperd in 1859 in Aspull, whose name was also Peter Leigh. I have everything on Peter Junior except his whereabouts in the 1841 census when he was 5 years old. In every subsequent census he is listed as being born in Westhoughton. The trouble is I have checked every page on the 1841 Westhoughton census return and have found no one called Peter Leigh with a 5 year old Peter. The earliest record I can find is the 1851 census where he is listed as the cousin of Peter and Ann Grundy of Scot Lane, Aspull.

I have also considered emigration to USA, Canada and Australia but unfortunately, ....nothing!! Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.

I'd be interested to hear of ancestry and life of a Sussanah Griffiths, b. approximately 1885 in the Hindley / Westhoughton area,may have had a brother Robert, and a Nellie and Kate as siblings, and a William Anderson, possibly a bit younger, possibly Atherton born, with a sister, Sally.They may have married in area. One of the two may have been R.C., certainly there were some colliery/mining connections. They may have moved to a mining area in Yorkshire, Fitzwilliam, by end of WW1, and back into Lancashire in 1920s or 30s. Information - or clues- would be welcome!

Soon after his Daughter was born Jack was posted to Italy, the marriage broke down and they separated soon after that in the 1950s. Jack married again and may have had had at two sons possibly named Jimmy and Terry, in the late 1960s early 70s the family were living in the Daisy Hill area of Westhoughton, his wife may have had sight problems in later life. Other possible relevant places are Swinton and Walkden. Jack's parents may have been John (also known as Jack) and Mary, formerly Bullough. Jack senior was a bricklayer.
